Winchester® Ammunition Commits Support for the 2024 NAAGA Summit in Dallas, Texas

Winchester Ammunition has committed its support to the 2024 National African American Gun Association (NAAGA) Summit in Dallas, Texas, July 25 – 28. NAAGA will use Winchester ammunition for its instructor certification courses and range days taking place throughout the event.

“The National African American Gun Association is proud to announce our alignment with Winchester,” said Philip Smith, President and Founder of National African American Gun Association. “Both organizations share similar missions and having their annual support allows us to unite diverse communities for the common goal of responsible gun ownership and training. Winchester continues to be a leader in the industry, and we look forward to growing the relationship for years to come.”

The 2024 National Summit is the second annual national convention following last year’s event in Atlanta, Georgia. NAAGA is celebrating its ninth year as a membership-based organization of 45,000 members and more than 100 chapters, nationwide. The summit is expected to draw more than 1,500 attendees for an extended weekend of training, support, and networking with fellow gun owners and shooting sports participants.

“NAAGA is actively engaging tens of thousands of people across the country through community and the positivity of the shooting sports,” said Jason Gilbertson, director of marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “We’re committed to the mission of the National African American Gun Association and look forward to the Summit in Dallas.”

You care about bettering your community, helping those in need and conserving wildlife and wild places for generations to come. It’s time for gun owners to tell their stories, to show how they’re making a difference.
